PHOTOS: Moi University couple spends Ksh100, 000 on wedding but broke up after an hour; this is why

Two students, Isaac Mureithi and Lucy Kamau, from Moi University on Saturday, June 10 surprised residents of Eldoret in Uasin Gishu County, when they held a mock wedding, which cost Ksh100, 000, as part of their Fourth Year academic practical.

The two students, who are pursuing a bachelor’s degree course in Hospitality and Tourism, held a Swahili theme model wedding, which saw the couple’s dresses, food and decoration resemble those of the coastal people.

Eldoret town residents had not known that the event was a model wedding until the practical exam ended, when they were informed about it.

Mureithi and Lucy went as far as exchanging rings as is the case in an actual wedding. The mock wedding, which took nearly an hour to conduct, was ‘annulled’ thereafter.

According to the pair’s lecturer, Dr Jacqueline Korir, the mock wedding was part of practical exams that the students had to sit so as to fulfill the requirements of their course.

Dr Korir said the purpose of the practical exam was to prepare the students of Hospitality and Tourism for the future, which will likely entail planning a similar event for themselves or on behalf of other members of the society.

Dr Korir said the wedding cost Ksh100, 000.

She added that the class is now looking for lovebirds who are unable to fund a wedding to use the set-up in tying the knot so that the resources do not go to waste.
